A New Year's Resolution as a Patient
Today is the day to start the New Year’s resolutions. Back on December 31, 2004 I posted here a thread titled “A Few Physician’s New Year’s Resolutions”
which suggested three ways physicians might change and hopefully improve their practice and their impression on their patients.
For this year Resolution thread, how about considering what would be their own personal resolutions which my visitors might select as being important as they relate to their life experience as a patient in a doctor’s office and which they think might be reasonable to follow. Or maybe I am making an impossible request. It is hard enough to follow a resolution just dealing with yourself (like lose weight, stop smoking, keep your desk clean and orderly and so on) but maybe it is almost impossible to follow a resolution when dealing with another party, particularly a physician who has another agenda.
Anyway, let’s give it a try. As a doctor,myself, who has been and surely will be a patient again, let me resolve to talk to my doctor as a patient and not as another doctor. Do you really think I can do that? ..Maurice.
